Yip - say buh-bye gloo!

On the up side, buy a tin of Bostik 2402 on fleabay and keep it somewhere cool until you need it. Then split it for mixing, e.g a quarter adhesive and a quarter activator in a mixing jar. Recap the rest and tape it up. It should be OK until the useby date. This stuff only has a 12 month shelf life from manufacture anyway.

BTW, From the other thread - I don't think that 10hp will get you up to 16kts, just hope to get on the plane eventually....
